(Reuters) - Uniper's Russian unit Unipro UPRO.MM said on Thursday it wants to classify assets at its other four power stations in Russia as strategic assets, Interfax cited Unipro official Dmitry Ermilichev as saying.
In October, state-controlled Finnish utility Fortum agreed to buy a stake of more than 20.5% in Uniper, bringing its total holding to more than 70.5%.
Bestowing strategic status makes the assets subject to regulatory approval in Russia.
